Has your pet changed your life? Have you ever wondered what she's thinking when she stares up at you and tilts her head? Could she have the secret to understanding the world at large and your place in it? Or is she just more interested in how your shoe tastes? The world of a middle-aged New York couple is turned topsy-turvy when the husband brings home an exceptionally engaging canine running loose in Central Park in the hilarious and heartwarming comedy, Sylvia.
From Tony Award-winning® director Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Glengarry Glen Ross) and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee A. R. Gurney (The Dining Room, Love Letters), Sylvia stars a brilliant cast of acclaimed comedians: two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers, How To Succeed...), Tony winner Julie White (The Little Dog Laughed), Drama Desk Award-winner Robert Sella (Stuff Happens), and fresh from her Tony-winning performance in You Can’t Take It With You, Annaleigh Ashford as Broadway's friskiest new heroine. This wonderful look into the complexities of love and commitment asks what it truly means to be devoted to your partner…and how do you choose between the love of your life and man's best friend?
